Best way to see the Galápagos Islands


My latest article on the best way to see the Galápagos Islands is published on

My advice:

  • First take a cruise — it is really the only way to see the remote places where most of the animals are.
  • Then you’ll need a hotel stay to relax after all those early mornings, excursions and evening slide shows.  Plus you’ll want time to check out Ecuador’s prettiest beach (on Santa Cruz) and play with the sea lions in Isabela’s port.

Once you’ve plotted out which cruise itinerary you’d like, you’ll want to figure out your post-cruise stay.  Here’s some help: my article On which Galápagos island should I stay?

I thought Haugan Cruises, in the luxury category, was a fantastic way to see the islands: my Haugan Cruises review.
